John McAfee said he's not the third party helping unlock an iPhone used by a terrorist — but he knows who is — and he's not fond of their approach.
"I promise you that [Apple CEO] Tim Cook and Apple are not going to be happy with the solution that the FBI has come up with," McAfee, the controversial technology executive, told CNBC's "Power Lunch." "Because it is almost as bad as a universal master key."
McAfee is the cybersecurity pioneer behind McAfee Security antivirus software products, now part of Intel. He declined to name with whom, or how, the FBI plans to move forward. But his comments come as the Justice Department says it may have found a third party to hack the iPhone at the center of a cybersecurity standoff.
